Royal Challengers Bangalore had a bright start to the IPL 2021 season but went on to lose their momentum at the latter stages of the tournament. They ended up losing out in the playoffs and they will be hoping to make a big statement by having a good mega auction.

Royal Challengers Bangalore are yet to win an IPL trophy and they will not have their regular skipper Virat Kohli in the leadership role. They will also miss AB De Villiers who has part ways with the game and their retention is expected to be Glenn Maxwell, Yuzvendra Chahal, Harshal Patel, or Mohammad Siraj. Here are 3 big players who won’t be retained by Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Devdutt Padikkal was picked up by the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the previous IPL auction of 2020 and he had a big impact on the franchise straightaway. The elegant left-hander after an excellent season was awarded a place in the Indian side as well in the recent tour to Sri Lanka.

Padikkal has been seen as the future of Indian cricket, and teams might be willing to pick him up. However, Padikkal is unlikely to be retained by the franchise as they have two batters on the retention list with the likes of Virat Kohli and Glenn Maxell in reckonings.
